Aaron Franklin and co. are getting the gang back together. The barbecue master and his partners will welcome a star-studded cast of chefs and bands from around the country at Hot Luck Fest during Memorial Day weekend 2020.
The fourth annual festival will likely follow the same format as previous festivals, with events over three nights and a Sunday brunch, with music concerts at night in clubs across town. Previous festival attendees include Matty Matheson, Christina Tosi, Chris Shepherd and dozens more.
The festival released its Whole Enchilada passes at a discounted price this morning. The passes, which include entry to all festival events and free drinks, cost $500 for adults. This year there are also early bird passes for students ages 12-20 for $150 and passes for kids under 12 for $50. There are also early bird Whole Enchilada passes for families that cost $1,000 and include two adult passes and two kids passes.
Ticket prices will go up after these passes sell out and general admission tickets will go on sale in the spring when the chef and band lineup is announced.
